Grigor Dimitrov is ranked 19 in the world right now, and he has been playing solid tennis during this hard-court section of the season. As for McDonald, he is ranked 39 in the world, and he is in the main draw here as one of the ATP China Open wildcards. So with this in mind, what are the best bets to make for this match? Let me show you.
Dimitrov to win @ 10/21 (1.48)
Based on form and general level of play, I’ve got to shoot for Dimitrov to win this contest. The 32-year-old Bulgarian has been playing decent tennis in recent months, and if it wasn’t for Alex Zverev, he might have won a few tournaments. So for me, he is worth backing for the win, even if the odds are a bit shorter than I’d like.
Dimitrov to win 2-0 @ 6/5 (2.20)
If Grigor Dimitrov serves well, he should be able to get the job done against McDonald in straight sets. This was also the outcome of their most recent meeting, which came in Washington just last month – a match that Dimitrov won 7-6 6-2.
Mackenzie McDonald vs Grigor Dimitrov odds
If you’re interested in the overall chances of each guy winning, the 10/21 odds for Dimitrov reflect a win probability of 67.70%. As for McDonald, his odds to win are 8/5, indicating that he has a 38.50% chance of winning.
The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and the odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with your bookmaker before placing a bet.
Dimitrov seeking third win over American opponent
This first-round match is approaching quickly, so let me provide a preview to accompany these ATP China Open predictions.
Mackenzie McDonald preview
McDonald is a very capable hard-court player, as reflected by his current ranking of 39 in the world. With that said, despite some big wins obtained during the North American hard-court swing, his form has not been fantastic since. In fact, just last week he needed three sets to beat two guys ranked outside the top 150 in the world.
Grigor Dimitrov preview
Grigor Dimitrov is very much a veteran of the ATP Tour these days at 32 years of age. Additionally, his game is well suited to quick hard courts like those in Beijing. Therefore, if he hits his spots with both his serve and his forehand, I feel he will have a bit too much for Mackenzie McDonald.
McDonald vs Dimitrov head to head
McDonald and Dimitrov have competed against each other three times in the past, and Dimitrov leads the head-to-head 2-1. All of these three matches have been played on hard courts too, yet Dimitrov won the most recent encounter in Washington in straight sets.
